Detroit shortstop Jose Iglesias says he has stress

ORCHARD PARK, N. Bill Baumgartner Jersey Store .Y. - The Buffalo Bills defence has a dynamic duo: Super Mario and a newcomer named Rambo.Credit them for helping rattle Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers.Bacarri Rambo came off the bench to replace injured backup safety Duke Williams to intercept Rodgers on consecutive drives in the second half. And veteran end Mario Williams put the finishing touches on a 21-13 victory Sunday by forcing Rodgers to fumble into the end zone for a safety with 1:51 left.Its a testament to what we do, defensive tackle Kyle Williams said, assessing how a dominating defensive effort contributed to keeping the Bills (8-6) in a jumbled playoff picture. Weve played against great quarterbacks, so the only expectation that we had was to play well and win a football game.Marcus Thigpen scored on a 75-yard punt return, while Dan Carpenter hit all four field-goal attempts, including three in the second half.The Bills are assured their first eight-win season since going 9-7 in 2004.A week after ending Peyton Mannings consecutive game touchdown streak at 51 in a 24-17 loss at Denver, the Bills came away with a victory by putting the clamps on one of the NFLs most prolific offences.I wouldnt say statement win, safety Aaron Williams said. We went up against a Hall of Famer last week, why couldnt we do it again this week?The defence made up for a sputtering Kyle Orton-led offence, which was limited to 253 yards and 13 first downs. Orton finished 14 of 27 for 158 yards and an interception.In the process, Buffalo put a halt to the Packers five-game winning streak, and prevented Green Bay (10-4) from inching closer to securing a sixth consecutive playoff berth.It was frustrating, said Rodgers. Some days are going to be like this. We set the standard pretty high, and we like to live up to it every week.Rodgers went 17 of 42 for 185 yards, with two interceptions. He had been picked off just three times this season, and none since throwing two in Green Bays last loss, 44-23 at New Orleans on Oct. 26.It wasnt all on Rodgers, either, as he had little support from his receivers. That includes the usually reliable Jordy Nelson, who had a key drop late in the third quarter.From his 6, Rodgers found Nelson wide open running up the right side. The pass hit Nelson in stride, but the ball glanced off the receivers fingers.We had exactly what we wanted. We just didnt make the play, Nelson said. I short-armed it and dropped it.The Packers were limited to Eddie Lacys 1-yard touchdown run and two field goals by Mason Crosby.This from a team coming off a 43-37 win over Atlanta and that had outscored its past five opponents by 201-113. Rodgers combined for 1,580 yards passing with 16 touchdowns and no turnovers in his previous five games.It all came to a halt against a defence ranked among the NFLs top 10 in nearly every measurable category.Rambo set the tone upon taking over after backup Duke Williams was escorted off the field experiencing concussion-like symptoms early in the third quarter. The Bills were already down starting safety DaNorris Searcy (hamstring).Rambos first interception came on the Packers second play from scrimmage after Dan Carpenter hit a 35-yard field goal to put Buffalo ahead 16-10.Rambo sprinted 10 yards from midfield to make a sliding interception of Rodgers pass intended for Randall Cobb at the Green Bay 45. His second came on the Packers next drive when Rodgers passed for Jarrett Boykin over the middle. It tipped off the receivers hands and to Rambo. That set up Carpenter hitting a 48-yard field goal.Its a huge, huge confidence boost, said Rambo, released in September after playing 13 games for Washington over the past two seasons. Its going to allow me to play even faster and build confidence in myself that, hey, I can do this. I belong in this league.The Packers werent done until their first play on their final possession.From his 10, Rodgers dropped back and had the ball knocked out of his hand by Mario Williams, who burst in from the left side and outmuscled backup lineman JC Tretter.The play was whistled dead once Lacy recovered the fumble, because only Rodgers was allowed to advance the ball with under 2:00 remaining.NOTES: The Packers fell to 0-6 at Orchard Park. ... The Bills went 4-0 against the AFC North. ... Mario Williams also contributed a special teams play, by blocking Crosbys 53-yard field-goal attempt with 6:01 left in the second quarter.___AP NFL website: and Mike Nott Jersey Store . -- Damian Lillard couldnt believe when he got a clear look at the rim. John Shonk Jersey Store . JOHNS, N. . -- Detroit shortstop Jose Iglesias says he has stress fractures in both legs and isnt sure when hell be able to play again, leaving the Tigers two weeks to fill his spot for opening day and perhaps a lot longer.Bolton have confirmed Phil Parkinson as their new manager after agreeing a compensation package with his former club Bradford. The League One clubs agreed a deal on Thursday for the 48-year-old, who was at Valley Parade for more than four years and led the Bantams to the play-offs last month.He is now set for a new challenge as Neil Lennons successor at the Macron Stadium after Lennon left the Trotters by mutual consent in March with the club 11 points from safety at the foot of the Championship. Interim boss Jimmy Phillips could do nothing to prevent the slide into League One, leaving Parkinson with the task of restoring the club to English footballs second tier. He has signed a two-year contract with the club and will be joined by assistant manager Steve Parkin in making the move to the North West.Goalkeeping coach Lee Butler, head of sports performance Nick Allamby and head scout Tim Breacker will also make up the backroom team at Bolton.Im very pleased to come on board. Its a fantastic challenge and its one Im really looking forward to and I cant wait to get started, he ttold the clubs Youtube channel. China Jerseys. I think for myself, personally, it was a fresh challenge.Ive been at Bradford nearly five years and enjoyed every minute of that, but when the opportunity came to speak to Bolton I looked into it over the last week or so and just thought its a club which has got the platform ready to go forward again. Hopefully I can play my part in achieving that.After announcing Parkinsons departure on Friday afternoon, Edin Rahic, one of Bradfords new joint-owners, said: Everyone at the club appreciates what Phil has achieved as manager of Bradford City.We wanted him to stay and work with us as new owners but he has decided to leave on his own terms.It was not our decision for him to go and it is only fair after such a long and successful time at the club we did not stand in his way to follow another opportunity.He will rightly be remembered as one of the clubs most successful managers ever.
